- Peter Obi has reacted to rumour about his health condition
- Some media had claimed that Obi suffered heart attack on Tuesday, May 7
- Reacting to the claims, the former Anambra governor's aide described the claims as false, saying his boss did not suffer any heart attack or any debilitating illness
Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra state and vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded elections, has denied claims that he suffered a heart attack on Tuesday, May 7.
Vanguard reports that a statement issued on Tuesday, May 7, by his media aide, Valentine Obienyem, pointed out how Obi felt feverish and visited a hospital at Onitsha, had his body examined and received treatment.
Legit.ng gathered that while reacting to canards that Obi suffered a heart attack, Obienyem dismissed the claims, noting that Obi is hale and hearty and did not suffer any heart related disease as claimed by some people.
He said: “Yesterday, I posted a report of how the former governor of Anambra state felt a bit feverish and had to visit a hospital at Onitsha. I equally reported that he returned and went straight to office to continue his work. We spent the whole day planning on the focus of his next apostolate: support to 50 selected hospitals.
“Today, the reckless fringe twisted the report that Obi suffered a heart attack. I should believe that anybody capable of coming out with such a wicked and twisted lie is as well as wishing him dead. But the sooner they realise that God is the creator and custodian of all lives, the better for them.
“May I therefore use this medium to inform the public that Obi did not suffer any heart attack or any debilitating illness. He felt a bit feverish, which is one of the pangs of humanity, visited a hospital in Anambra state and that is all. Mr. Peter Obi is hale and hearty."
Obienyem added that though the reactions of many were that the wish of those liars for Obi should visit them, Obi’s position is that people should continue praying for the harbingers of such wicked news to realize that life belongs to God.
He encouraged wealthy Nigerians to remember the sick and extend our hands of love to them always.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Obi on Monday, May 6, visited Queen of the Rosary hospital, Waterside, Onitsha, dropped samples for a test and received treatments.
